I stayed at Bay Watch Villas for three nights. It is clean & comfortable, peaceful & nicely maintained. After a recent renovation the property is fresh & the little finishing touches have been well thought out by the owner. Halfway through my Sri Lankan trip the air conditioning was a blessing too! Breakfast was delightful including a huge selection of fresh fruits, juices, tea, coffee etc. The property is just off of a main road, which I think works in it's favour (very little noise) & it is well placed to jump in to a tuk tuk to explore the fabulous beaches of Mirissa. A short walk away is an interesting Buddhist Temple. Talk to the owner Nuwan - he'll help you with any day trips that you want to take & is a fountain of local knowledge. Super find!
